Batch scanning is used to scan large groups of documents at once.  Batches usually consist of a set of documents of all one type or all for one person.  Later, when documents are indexed, each page in the batch can be indexed individually or indexes can be applied to groups of pages.

Step-by-step guide

  1. Login to BDMS Web Access.
  2. From the Application List either:
  3. Select the Batch Import button OR
  4. Right-click on the BDMS application where the new content will be stored and select Batch Import.

  5. On the New Batch Document screen, verify that the correct Application name appears in the Application field.  Enter a name for the batch in the Batch Namefield. It is helpful for the person doing the indexing if the batch name has meaningful information. Select Next.

  6. Verify that the scanner is recognized and that the settings are correct using theScanner Settings button. See WX - Selecting a Scanner for information on how to select the scanner for the first time. See Scan Settings for details and recommendations on what scan settings to use.

  7. Place the document on the scanner and select the Scanbutton.
  8. Additional pages can be added to the batch by loading the scanner and using the Scan button again.
  9. Individual pages can be removed from the batch by using the Page Menubutton and choosing Delete Page.

  10. Once all the pages have been scanned to the batch, close the batch by navigating to the Application Batch List using the Application Batch List button. A new batch can be started from here.
